Basement design has taken our interiors by storm. More flexible than a loft conversion, some of the top trends for basements add exceptional living space.
The trend for basement conversions shows no signs of stopping. These versatile and flexible spaces have been associated with swimming pools and wine cellars; however, there are practical and aesthetic trends that are ideal for the modern home.
Basement planning and design are critical if you want to make your new living space work for your lifestyle. Here are the top basement trends right now:
Keep It Open
Open-plan living has become the norm in interior design, as keeping your basement open makes the most of the space you have created. By optimising space and light and creating a multi-purpose area, you will add value to your property.
Create A Family Space
Do you want to take the open-plan concept one step further? If so, create a multitasking space that can be used as a home office, family den, and multimedia room. Add bookshelves and plenty of storage for toys and games so that your space can effortlessly flip from children to adults.
The Ultimate Hobby Space
For most of us, a basement conversion can create the ultimate hobby space. Good task lighting, storage, and dedicated equipment can transform your basement into a crafting den, a music room, or even your own craft brewery. Add smart home technology to power your own sports room or a stage and soundproofing so that teens can rock out without disturbing the rest of the house.
A Hotel-Style Guest Suite
If your parent isn’t ready for a granny flat quite yet, why not create a hotel-style suite with a living and kitchen area and an en-suite bedroom? The size and complexity of the design will depend on your needs and your budget, but creating a suite that can be used by visitors or even as a self-isolation space is a great idea when comfort and privacy are a priority.
Another highly popular basement conversion idea involves creating a home gym or spa. This is an ideal use for any size of the basement and can be as spartan or luxurious as you like. Basement design plans that include a sauna, massage area, and walk-in shower are currently highly popular and can even save you money on a gym membership in the long run.
A Garden Room
If your home has a lower ground floor at the garden level, a walk-out design is well worth considering. Not only will you benefit from plentiful natural light but also you will create a real wow factor when you opt for a basement construction with access to the garden, giving you a space with separate access from the rest of the home.
This style of construction can be tricky and requires sound planning; however, the results can really be spectacular. Noble Structures has the expertise to carry out your basement plans and designs, so get in touch today.
